    I'd say I do a little of both, blame and rationalize. But I blame myself, or rather, I take responsibility for allowing myself for that person or that thing to stress me out. Obviously if I was a being tortured in a black site or holed up in Guantanamo Bay, placed in a dog cage and exposed to god knows what kind of psychological torture, I wouldn't be blaming myself.

    But even in that situation blaming isn't really that useful. It can identify the cause, but you're still responsible for what to do next (in that situation there's pretty much nothing you can do).

    I find that when I'm in peak physical condition, I can handle just about anything (probably not waterboarding). From melodramatic girlfriends, to bosses or clients trying to micromanage me. God I hate that shit.

    And I sometimes let loved ones stress me out, to a point (and rarely), because I'm invested in them and can't just say, "fuckkk offf! get out." Ha, although I have said that.

    Then on the rationalization side, I may be stressed over some project, so I think "Well I better do NOTHING else until this is done." But the reality is, if I got on the treadmill for 20 minutes or some other exercise, I'd feel a lot more relaxed and approach the project with a clearer head.
    If I'm stressed badly enough I self-medicate.

    I attempt to ignore stress as long as possible until it becomes debilitating. Next I will often try and rationalize it to make it go away. I seldom "blame", I more just attempt to find the source, which isn't always easy to do.

    I usually look at my stress in Enneagram 6 terms because it's generally about being afraid of a certain (bad) future outcome. Being tired amplifies my negative feelings so stress can fall under that, but it's not the root cause. It is also true that I feel a lot of stress about being true to myself, but that's more of an existential, long-term stress, and doesn't account for a lot of short-term situations. I think Fi moody subjectivity can be a source of how strongly I feel stress - an overwhelming body response that I can't seem to turn off - and Ne flying to 1,000 other options often exacerbates a situation when I am stressed about making a choice. But again I can see that also being about 6 lack of trust in my own self-direction and ability to choose well for myself.
